    I was offered this book for Christmas and I've really enjoyed every word of it.Well presented with many different Science & Tech. topics, each answered in clear and simple sentences. It has even helped me out for a Geology project at University.

    This book is faded and the edges of the pages are well-worn. I use this book at least once a week to look something up, and sometimes I just open to a random page and start reading. This book has done me well.

    I've perused the latest edition. Would take several months to read the whole thing because it's all facts. However, I'm thinking of buying this to keep around the house for grandkids to use and it's interesting in small doses.

    i didn't read this cover to cover, but did read most if it/what I felt I needed to know. Pretty interesting stuff :)(I read this as part of my studying for my MTEL General Science test.)

    I read this book over and over as a kid. I was fascinated by the quirky questions and surprising answers. I dare to say that I would not have been as good of a science student, if not for this book.

    It was OK. If you read a text book you will get the same results.

    This book really helps if you have a common question about science and lots of information on things you would never think about.

    I learned so much from this book when I was a child! Everything from how many dimples a golf ball has to what is a singularity. I think this contributed to my nerdiness.
